I Need God's Word for Direction!

I Need God’s Word For Direction!


I need God’s word to show me God’s direction.

I must apply it for his discipline and correction.


If I’m looking for approval for the way I’m living.

I don’t need a court to change the truth that God is giving!


I don’t what a court’s may say is “constitutional.”

Our courts are often confused and delusional!


If I need to know what’s right or what’s wrong.

The truth of God’s word is what truly belongs!


His word gives the Godly truth I desperately need!

Through God’s spirit, he’ll plant the seed!


The answers I need are not in the constitution.

Nor will I find them in a government institution!


Because of sin, not the state, there’s a separation.

We need God’s word all through this nation!


His word is what I must daily apply!

The word of God can change and purify!


 I want to keep your words, oh God, ever so near.

For only your words give a hope, that’s sincere!


From the depths of my heart, I want to praise you!

I want to know your word, because I want to!


Thank you my Lord, for the words you’ve given!

They changed and blessed

the way I’m livin’!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
